The Road Recovery organization, which is dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities, teamed up with legendary guitarist Slash (GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER), to talk about how the programs at Road Recovery help teens "get out of a funk." Whatever their situation, music and performing can help teens overcome addiction and adversity. Slash was able to get to know kids like this and perform music with them.
"Young people, and even adults, just get inspired by the arts to be able to get it together and get out of a funk, get out of a situation and turn your life around," Slash explains. "That's what the kids at Road Recovery have done."
Road Recovery is dedicated to helping young people battle addiction and other adversities by harnessing the influence of entertainment industry professionals who have confronted similar crises and now wish to share their experience, knowledge, and resources.
With support from the mental health field, Road Recovery provides hands-on mentorship training, educational/performance workshops, peer-support networking, and "all access" to real-life opportunities by collaborating with young people to create and present live-concert events and recording projects.
Road Recovery empowers young people of all backgrounds to face their struggles and helps them develop comprehensive life skills, guided by professionals and supported by a community of like-minded peers.
